Did you know Turmeric is one of the most versatile healing spices in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits. This brightly coloured spice from India has been a staple in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisine. Chinese medicine has used turmeric for ages. Though turmeric is just now gaining mainstream popularity, it has existed throughout history, read more here

...nice to know, every summer there is always an oversupply of zucchini.

Jo said...

Lovely. Courgette recipes are always good as there's always a glut when you grow your own.

Looks so good!

I made sweetcorn fritters once, they weren't very well received, but that could have had more to do with my cooking!
Have a great weekend.

This looks like a wonderful healthy dish! I imagine you can make it without the psyllium husk powder if you wish. Thank you for another nice dish. ♥

Elephant's Child said...

YUM. Big yum. I make something similiar without the psyllium husk - what does it add to the recipe?

William Kendall said...

Looks good, though I've never tried zucchini.

Re Psyllium Husk:
Both 'The Joy of Home With Martha Ellen' and 'Elephant's Child' asked about Psyllium Husk.

This is used as a binder in many recipe suggestions, it adds fibre and is gluten free.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and comments, it's always great to receive, read and share them.

All the best Jan

Breathtaking said...

Hello Jan!:) This recipe is sooo good for my diet,...yes I'm still eating food with less calories, and feel so much better for it. I love beetroot, and we grow Courgettes on the farm, so this will be on our menu very soon.
Enjoy your weekend!:)

Martha said...

Oh yummy! Thanks for sharing this. And happy weekend to you!

happyone said...

Sure looks good.

Jan, that sounds perfectly delightful! And I like that it calls for both turmeric and pepper. Black pepper is supposed to enhance the benefits of turmeric somehow.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

PERFECT. Just the kind of recipe I'm looking for when I entertain an out of town friend next week. Thanks for this wonderful vegetarian recipe, Jan.

This looks delicious. I think it's time to get some Turmeric in the house. That boat race above that you posted would be fun to watch.
